Reuters reported that China’s environmental crackdown is the “biggest uncertainty” facing the nation’s copper smelters, as the government steps up inspections and stiffens emissions control standards.

Mr Yuneng Wu, vice president of the state-owned company, which is the country’s top integrated copper producer, said at the Asia Copper Conference in Shanghai said that “Producers risk being shut down. Supervision teams are everywhere.”

He said that China’s major smelters have eliminated outdated technology and upgraded equipment as part of the government’s push to make the industry more efficient and reduce pollution.

But this year the emissions requirements were strengthened by 50%, requiring companies to install more environmental protection equipment.
